Well, this is the offical background for my army. I've spent alot
of time working on this, so please, feel free to criticize it, suggest improvements, but keep in mind, this is my army, and I reserve the right to tell you where to stick it sideways.
The Red Arm Alliance
About and History
The Red Arm Alliance is just that, a relatively loose alliance of several dozen worlds all united under one banner. The RAA is a upper-Teklevel 5 civilization just beginning to enter Teklevel 6. One of the more interesting aspects of the RAA is that they are constantly trying to recover artifacts from a long extinct Teklevel 7 civilization known as the Tekulain. They already have obtained several artifacts, some of which have made a massive impression in the military of the RAA.
The military of the RAA is divided into legions, with each star cluster providing the soldiers, mechanix, medix, and so on my period. However, there are some legions that are known as ‘Spare Parts Legions.’ These legions have almost no uniformity as they are made up of excess recruits, sole survivors of units that were wiped out, mercenaries, the odd cryo-revived and/or cloned soldier(s), and the scum of other legions. But these legions also keep the entire Alliance up and running as these legions can hit faster and harder than others, and can deal with a variety of needs, from assaulting a fortress that has survived a thousand years of siege, to holding a mile wide crater with no cover what-so-ever for months on end. They are the true backbone of the RAA, the first and last line of defense, and it is with one of these Spare Part Legions, the 13th Frozen Hell Legion, that our story(s) take place.
